What I'm Watching: Monk

Monk: Season 6, Episode 7 "Mr. Monk and the Daredevil" (B+)

I have always enjoyed Tim Bagley's recurring appearances on "Will & Grace" as well as his spots on "Monk" as Monk's essential nemesis and rival favorite patient of Dr. Kroeger's. Here he gets a nice long focus, where it becomes clear that he can be just as mean as Monk in criticizing inconsistencies as he does with the drawing the children give him. He also competes just as avidly, if not more, as Monk both for Dr. Kroeger's affection and to progress more than the other. Funniest thing the entire episode: Randy insisting on spelling out the letters even though he already knows what they are.
